The Pennsylvania Control Board reported a $450M total revenue during the month of October. That’s a 6% increase, $24M, compared to October 2021. This number combines all gaming activities in the Keystone state such as brick-and-mortar casinos, retail and online sports betting, online casinos, fantasy sports platforms, and video gaming terminals (VGTs).
The revenue leader was Hollywood Casino. This land-based casino generated $68.7M of the state’s total – a 20% increase from last October. Valley Forge came in second at $56.4M followed by Parx Casino at $55M. Lady Luck Casino, on the other hand, contributed the lowest amount to the total at $1.8M. Online casino games combined a total of $124M, 24M more than the previous year.
Some gaming activities saw significant growth since last year; others experienced a decline. Sports wagering took the lead with a solid 72% ($42.5M) revenue increase from October 2021. Fantasy sports, however, had the biggest drop – 25% less than the $3.7M generated last year.
In all, the results are positive although March remains the best month for 2022. That month, Pennsylvania’s gaming industry saw a total revenue of $462M.
